    Suggested Call Ups, Starting 11

    Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Lazaros/Fetfa Zeca Holebas Torosidis siovas manolas sokratis Odysseas 5-1-3-1 Might work we concede the midifleld since our options there sucks and we do anyways. make up for it with a beefed up defense which is our strength and rely almost exclusively for wings. just an idea not sure if it would work in practice. seems we play when we play in form players though and in their natural positions.
  2. tsimikas I think is a better crosses though and pacier... if we got 3 atb i'd choose tsimikas for the attacking flair
  3. they're pretty equal. koutris seems to make less defensive mistakes but tsimikas has more attacking flair. in form staf I like better than both though and holebas the most.
  4. today we were the better team and if we played the way we played today whole campaign we'd probably be top of the group. sucks that we are out but most of us didn't think we'd do it. it was a long shot. it was more to see a glimpse of ange's tactics. It's an improvement. he just needs to up the wing play and i'm confident he will since he already improved the squad with vlacho and siovas in his first game. koutris looked great out there too was impressed we have some nice depth at lb. would be great to get holebas back for one last campaign dude is on fiiiiire this season one of the best LB's in PL
  5. donis and lazaros with fetfa super sub fam that's what we need. rest of squad is okay. maybe mantalos for kourbelis MAYBE. at cm.
  6. Overall I liked the way we played though. Sokratis post. Mitro had a great chance first minutes I think. Toro header wide. Koulouris header on target should've used feet instead of head and would've been a goal. Could have been easily 2-0 or more.
  7. yeah I think even thessaloniki. Athens has become very left wing and a lot of Greeks don't want to be known as supporting Greece and being patriotic because they're scared of being labelled fascist. Rest of Greece I don't think gives a hoot.
  8. I think we look good. not happy with wings selections but if the inches went our way it could've been 2 or 3-0. Sokratis post and Torosidis header slightly above across bar. first 10 minuets we were shaky but we looked the better team the other 40 mins siovas looks good he has decent vision and long ball skills. glad he's on the side. manolas is a loss because he's proven to be a big aerial threat. I think siovas manolas and sokratis should all be starting given the option because our defense does give them a little too much space sometimes an extra cb might fix this. lazaros and donis on the wings would be lethal with fetfa as super sub as you will. squad selection isn't that much different but siovas and odysseas additions are positive. torosidis still has it but he'll be gassed for sure by 60th so probably gotta sub him. not sure who the 3rd sub should be.
  9. what if we beat finland 3-0 and win our last game too and finland loses their other game? we go through right? highly unliked but curious you never know!
  10. I'd imagine from the selections he'll do this mitro koulouris fortounis koutris zeca mantalos /pelka bakakis siovas sokratis manolas vlachodimos bakakis and koutris are gunna have to run for days. which they're capable of doing I suppose but they're also not that great so would have been better if we had full backs plus wingers to share the duty. defensively we'll be more robust in da middle

    yo this guy is passionate. I almost had tears listening to him talk opening minutes. I have a good feeling about this. let's hope it's right!
  12. kolouris honestly is proving to be a great striker in superleague. he might have the edge of karelis right now. scored against aek in 2-0 win and atromitos are top of the table. if the snap shot he shot against finland went in would've been insanely good goal. only missed by inches. strikers instinct. he has potential to be as good as mitro 8goals in 9 games
  13. he just scored a game winner for watford. he's in the form of his life this season.
  14. I'd ideally want for this campaign mitro donis fortounis fetfa zeca mantalos holebas sok man bakakis vlacho subs toro lazaros pelkas karelis siovas/kpaps barkas holebas is probably a pipe dream now so either staf or tsimikas pending on who's available.
  15. we need wingers badly and we leave out in form lazaros and fetfa? *face palm* especially that left flank. I prefer tsimikas over koutris but he's need under 21 so fair enough. holebas would've been nice.

    mitro worked well with a second striker jonas at cf I think. they typically played double striker. he hasn't been half bad at marseille. marseille should maybe start germain and him same time. mitroglou and donis up top together would be good but then we'd have to trim defense or midfield tough choices / injuries are always an issue.
  17. forgive me if this a repost but I could not find his thread so I figured it might have got deleted! he's one of the NT's best players gotta be on the board! anyways wanted to note that he got an assist to De Rossi via a thundrous header saved by Buffon and rebound caught by De Rossi in a 3-1 Roma win against Juventus.
  18. mitroglou scored a goal vs. psg to make it 1-1 but it was dissalowed over a bogus foul were a psg player basically ran into strootman and strootman was called for a foul it came off of a payet free kick. then a shot and mitroglou snapped up the rebound

    Giorgos Samaras ‒ (retired)

    Samaras was key for our midfield woes because he was a quasi LM/St and therefore could create something from nothing. He had flashes of world class brilliance. Now that Manchester City is an elite club his Resume looks even more impressive haha

    this was a good move by epo. new coach has 2 experimental nations league games in a way to get ready for euro qualifiers. pressure is slightly off.

    I wouldn't put it past us to win all remaining games either though. Finland game could've gone either way until sokratis got injured. unfortunately even a 3/3 will likely not get us through

    2018-2019 UEFA Nations League C

    they might actually just be good this year. eg) iceland that was decent but historically is not. maybe they have a slight golden generation. Lod was very good at pao and their defense was quite solid and organized too. wouldn't put it past them.

    I don't know much about him but I wouldn't mind a greek coach for a change.

    monaco's coach got sacked. we might be able to get him for cheap. got monaco a title and CL final I believe
  25. we're not playing our best line up injuries/poor selections combined we play like only 5 of our true starters mitroglou, fortounis, manolas, sokratis are undeniable our true best line up is probably mitroglou donis fortounis fetfa zeca mantalos holebas sok(c) man bakakis vlacho subs toro karelis lazaros c reserves kpaps retsos kourbelis barkas
